Historic Jesus
(From an Aramaic word meaning "skull")

The place where Jesus was crucified. The place could have been given the name because skulls were found there, or because it was a place where executions were normally carried out, or because it was shaped in the form of a skull. The word "Calvary" comes from a Latin word meaning "skull".
